aria-help (deprecated)

Remove the aria-help attribute.

Motivation

aria-help was never part of the ARIA standard, but was inherited from Webkit. The purpose of aria-help is to provide additional information that complements the label text. This same behaviour can be achieved using aria-describedby, although this involves referencing another element. The feature has been re-proposed as/renamed to aria-hint. So far it has only been used for legacy reasons, so should be removed.
